LG Optimus 2X Arrives In Europe Next Month

The first mainstream smartphone to feature a dual core processor, the LG Optimus 2X, will be launched in Europe next month according to a press release issued by LG.

The super phone, which is powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 SoC and runs on Android 2.2, was unveiled last week by the Korean manufacturer and will immediately take its place at the top end of LG's Android family, one which includes the Optimus One and the GT540.

The phone's main feature is a 4-inch touchscreen display with a 800x480 pixels resolution, comes with Wi-Fi, a microSD card reader, Bluetooth, 8GB onboard storage and 512MB RAM.

Expect the Optimus 2X to cost around £450 at launch as it takes on the HTC Desire HD and the soon-to-be released Sony Ericsson X12 and the Google Nexus S.

LG has also confirmed that they will get movie legend, Italian composer and director, Ennio Morricone, to make ringtones for the LG Optimus 2X.
